Central Iowa High School Dismisses After Bomb Threat
INDIANOLA, Iowa (AP) — A high school in central Iowa has dismissed early because of a bomb threat found in a girls' restroom.
Indianola Community Schools Superintendent Mike Teigland says classes at Indianola High School were dismissed at about 11 a.m. Thursday. Police and a bomb squad have been deployed to the school.
Teigland tells The Des Moines Register that the note was written in a way that made it a serious threat.
The school's principal announced over the intercom that students who drove to school should leave. Students who ride buses were taken to a facility at Indianola Middle School where parents could pick them up. Remaining students at the middle school will receive lunch and can stay until the end of the school day.
